How can you go wrong with a restaurant called Mosquito Café and a tag line that says "One bite is all it takes". Answer: you can't! We have been eating at Mosquito Café since we moved here a year and a half ago. It started out being our place to take the dog and remains her and our favorite outdoor patio. It has fans and plants and fountains. We ordered and I took my glass to fill with tea and saw the waiter already preparing Heidi's water bowl. We walked outside with the choice of any table. Usually this place is very busy, but tonight people stayed in giving us the place to ourselves practically. Jeff and I split the daily surf and turf special with Steak cooked to a perfect medium rare, shrimp with a slightly smoky flavor and only a tad overcooked, wonderful mashed potatoes, and a vegetable medley. Everything was superb! They have the best tea of anywhere, with a flavor that I can't quite identify...yet. Had to have some to-go. This place has really good service for a self-service restaurant. The gentleman kept our glasses full and made sure we and our puppy were happy. I did have some peach cobbler to go. A few seconds in the microwave and my midnight snack was complete.
We love to eat! As we dine our way through Galveston, we'll let you know about our experiences.
